Here’s a round up of new tech released in Thailand this week – 18 Feb 18


Ten speakers, crank ’em up

Turn your house into a disco (relax, the neighbours will love it) with Sony’s MHCV90DW Muteki speakers. You get four five-centimetre tweeters, two 25cm subwoofers and four 13cm mid-range woofers, collectively weighing 50.5 kilograms and costing Bt21,990. That includes a DVD player and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities.

That’s some smart watch

Samsung’s Gear S3 Frontier smartwatch has a 1.3-inch Super Amoled display with Always on Display technology so it’s constantly refreshed and looks like a real watch dial. It’s preloaded with 15 dials to choose among, has builtin GPS to go with health-tracking apps, and can also function as MP3 player. It retails for Bt12,900.

Superfast phone charging

With Energea’s Widock 2 Coils desktop wireless charger, you can zap up a phone vertically or horizontally. It’s only 185 grams. It can house any phone five to 10 millimetres thick. Compatible with Qi-enabled devices, it comes with Fast Charge technology. LED lights show the charging status. Get one from RTB Technology for Bt1,690.

Sounds like a RockStar

The Deamware RockStar is a portable Bluetooth speaker with 80 watts of output power. A professional DSP vocal processor is built for karaoke. The 2,600mAh lithium battery is good for up to 12 hours of play and the speaker doubles as a power bank. Splashproof and with eight audio inputs, this beast costs Bt24,900.

Self-portrait of the artist

Canon’s EOS M10 interchangeable-lens mirrorless camera boasts an 18-megapixel CMOS APSC image sensor and fast Hybrid CMOS ASF II system. The 180-degree tiltable LCD display is ideal for self-portraits, complete with four modes. With builtin Wi-Fi, NFC function and an EFM 1545mm kit lens, it sells for Bt17,210.
